RavenCroft dedicates itself to lavender cultivation and individual cultivar essential oil production.

Multiple English and French lavender varieties were established at our North Willamette Valley location in 2012, which now delight visitors with an extended show of color and fragrance. We harvest and distill each variety separately, allowing us to showcase the unique aromatic characteristics of our varietal essential oils.

During the bloom season, we open the farm on selected weekends and encourage visitors to stroll in the field, choose fresh lavender for bundling, and even picnic with our commanding territorial view. In Oregon, the English types of lavender precede the French types (the lavandins), with the bloom period starting as early as May, depending on spring weather conditions. Beautiful facilities at RavenCroft allow us to host special events pertaining to the cultivation and applications of lavender and other herbs. Visitors are also invited to browse in the The Raven’s Nest gift and garden shop where our essential oil products, as well as other lavender-themed items, are available to sample and purchase.
